a 25 watt fender amp. I have my eye on a Gsr200, with a Fender amp. And another question I have which may sound quite stupid to all you expert: Hey guys, I have a few questions....first of all, I want to know if an Ibanez bass would work good enough plugged into a Fender amp. Also, I need to know how good the sound is out of s, but are electric guitar cables the same cables you use to plug in a bass? Well, thanks alot for all your help!
Hey there Nathan,here's my two cents on your "needing help".
1)The brand of bass and amp combination does not matter at all.
2)The amp you're checking out happens to be an excellent amp.True,like
some of the other guys said,at 25 watts it's not going to give you
alot of volume(more than enough for practice or playing with non-
hardstrumming acoustic players)but the sound is very good;I should
know,I just bought a Fender bassman 60 about a month and a half ago,
and I was up in the air between the Fender 25 and the 60.I chose the
60 because of the higher output,but I have to say I think the 25 had
a slightly sweeter tone.Smaller amps usually do.Another amp you might
consider is a Hartke 60.It's about the same price,more output,and it's
got a midrange control that really changes the sound.
3)As for the Ibanez bass,I haven't tried the one you mentioned,but the
day I bought my amp I tried a few Ibanez basses and I give them high
marks.I have an Ibanez Musician bass I bought in 1981 and the sonnd
and craftsmanship can not be beat.That's just my opinion.People seem
to either love Ibanez or can't stand to be in the same room with them.
Remeber although an expensive bass is nice to have it's the player that
ultimately makes the sound.
Isn't this a great sight?Every one's so helpful.
Take your time and I'm sure you'll make the right decision.
Jazz it up,Mickster.
